Questions and Answers About Sleep

Hi
I have been using a cpap machine for a year now and have started to get a toothache the upper right side of my mouth. It is cold and heat sensitive. Also I have noticed that I 'm clenching my teeth at night. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm going to the dentist tomorrow to see if it is a dental problem or caused by the mask.

It doesn't hurt to know what your options are.

It is true that he is the best! If only you could stop his snoring though…When you think about going to sleep, you probably might want to just stay in the couch a little bit longer. You might actually even consider sleeping there (if you haven’t already done it). His…See More
